Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum is excited to announce our 25th Annual Camp Gordon Johnston Days events. For this special anniversary year we need your help in making the parade bigger and better than ever. We cordially invite you to participate in the 25th Annual Camp Gordon Johnston Days Parade in Carrabelle, Florida on Saturday, March 14, 2020 starting at 10:45 AM (ET). You do not have to have any military affiliation to participate, just an appreciation for our veterans and military.

Join us as we celebrate and recognize all military veterans and current service members here and abroad with a special tribute for our WWII veterans. This unique parade features vintage and restored military vehicles, including WWII DUKW, Willis Jeep and German Lieferwagen, Patriot Rider motorcycles, color guards, and, of course, many community floats, golf carts, classic cars, Shriners, and beauty queens. Individuals, community organizations and businesses are all welcome to participate with a float, vehicle or as walkers. All we ask is that you show your support by displaying red, white and blue colors. Please come and celebrate all veterans, past and present, by attending the March 14th parade at Carrabelle.

For best parade placement, please fill out the parade application found at https://www.campgordonjohnston.com/visit/special-events/ and return it by the deadline date of March 9, 2020. There is no cost to participate in the parade. If you arrive without pre-registering, you are still encouraged to join but may be placed at the end of the parade.

On Sunday, March 15, we will also be hosting a Dice Run to raise funds for constructing a vehicle display building next to the current museum facility. All types of vehicles are welcome in the Dice Run. Registration will be open from 12:00-1:30 PM at the museum and the run will conclude by 4:30 PM. Prizes for high and low rollers, door prizes, and 50-50 will be awarded.

We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming Camp Gordon Johnston Days Events.

Sincerely,
